Pygmy Boats Inc. of Port Townsend, Washington is the largest and oldest manufacturer of precision precut wood kayak kits in North America. Started in 1986 by boat designer and software engineer, John Lockwood, Pygmy Boats produced North America's first computer designed sea kayaks. In 23 years we have expanded our line to include 22 kayak models, our rowing skiff, the Wineglass Wherry, and our canoe the Taiga. Whether a paddler is 8 or 85, novice or advanced in technique, we have a craft to suit your needs.

Overview

One reviewer described the Arctic Tern 14 this way: "So light to lift. Everytime I hefted it, I was thrilled by how easy it was to shoulder carry. This boat puts a solo carry within the ability of paddlers for whom it was previously not possible. The Tern 14 is a godsend for smaller boaters." The Tern 14 is consistently one of Pygmy's most popular kayaks. At 32 pounds and 14 feet, it's extremely easy to car-top and its lower wetted surface area gives this boat a cruising speed advantage over longer boats.
